How to break old habits before they break you

Did you know that over 40 per cent of your daily actions are habitual?

Not a problem if they’re good ones of course but what if they’re aren’t…

If you find that the same bad or undesired habits keep cropping up – and they’re not only hard to break but give you feelings of failure because you can’t stop them doing so?

One way to find out how to break old habits before they break you is to head over to Rosalyn Palmer’s website where she offers advice on what to do here.

Or even better, why not hear that advice straight from the horse’s mouth as it were on this week’s Girls Around Town?

Ros will be joining June live in the studio for the first time since lockdowns began at the end of March 2020 and they’re both looking forward to catching up in person instead of by phone shortly after 11.10am.

Top of the agenda will be that guidance on how to put an end to those bad habits but there’ll be time too for an update on the latest news from her coaching business and no doubt for a quick catch up on life on the farm over in Lincolnshire as well!

Make sure you’re tuned in to 107.8FM or listening on the apps, on Alexa or online for all this and more when you Put On Your Sunday Best this weekend…

Giving the gift of kindness this Christmas

Search kindness quotes online and – believe it or not – you’ll be able to take your pick from no fewer than 3,473 suggestions on just one of the sites that pops up!

A hugely popular topic and something that should be high on everyone’s agenda all year round of course…

Which is why, even though National Kindness Day 2021 has already been and gone, that’s exactly what this weekend’s guest on Girls Around Town will be talking about!

Joining June in the second hour of the show, Cathie Babbington will be sharing her own thoughts on being kind and why it’s especially important right now.

Whether it’s to family or friends, colleagues or customers, find out from Cathie how you can give the gift of kindness this Christmas, often without spending a penny and simply showing them by words or deeds that they’re in your thoughts.

Make sure you’re tuned to 107.8FM or listening online, on the apps or on Alexa from just after 11.10am on Sunday, when she’ll be live in the studio for the first time since lockdown began, sharing the latest news from her own coaching business too…

Before she practises what she’s preaches where kindness is concerned and treats June to a bit of Sunday brunch in one of the Newark‘s lovely little eateries!

A Christmas party with a purpose

A first-time guest on Girls Around Town this weekend…

But if you live in or around Newark, there’s a pretty good chance you’ll at least recognise the name of the local charity Rosemary Holland will be talking about.

You may have already seen details of the event she’s been working on recently alongside Newark’s Town Mayor, Lisa Geary – and if you were as quick off the mark as June, you might even have tickets for it!

Taking place from 6.30pm to 10.30pm on Friday 26 November at LetsXcape in The Buttermarket, their Christmas Community Event is in aid of Newark Women’s Aid, one of Lisa’s chosen charities…

And when June and Rosemary starting planning this Sunday‘s on-air chat, top of the list of things to share with listeners was, not surprisingly, how to buy those all-important tickets.

A slight change of plan there though, because within days of the event details being released, they’d all literally flown off the shelf!

Which means that, unless you’ve already booked yours, unfortunately it’s too late to join in the fun on the night, when guests will be enjoying food and drink, a quiz and a raffle and of course plenty of chat.

The good news is you can still get involved and help support the amazing work done for women and children by this local charity and you can find out exactly how to do just that in the second hour of the show.

With Christmas fast approaching, Lisa and Rosemary are asking guests on the night to donate gifts for those women and children, along with essential household items for the refuge. And even if you’re not one of the lucky ticket-holders for the event, they’d be over the moon if you could do that too!

Rosemary will be explaining just what sort of things they’re looking for, how you can make those donations and of course describing the invaluable work done by the charity since it was founded in 1975 by a local women’s group that recognised the need for the provision of refuge for victims of domestic abuse in this area.

Make sure you’re tuned in to 107.8FM, listening on the apps, on Alexa or online from just after 11.10am to find out more…

And don’t forget to Put On Your Sunday Best again on Sunday 28 November, when June will be sure to report back on how things went on the Friday evening!
